What We've Been Up To...

We're in full holiday mode around here, here's a glimpse:

Finally seeing Daddy and getting to celebrate his birthday and his being done for the semester with a favorite dinner and favorite cookie

Annual Cookie baking with Nana, using my grandmother's Spritz cookie recipe, it's a 4 generation tradition!

Loving that all it takes is a card or two in the mail to brighten our day

Lots of Christmas crafting, our first experiment with shrinky-dinks, so fun!

Yesterday was the biggest Holiday Fun-Fest ever! We did all the "must-dos" when in Atlanta for the holidays, I'm not not sure they're recommended to be done all in one day though! We were exhausted by the end of it, but it sure was fun!
First, we went to the Varsity for lunch,

MMMMMM, frosted orange...

Followed by a girl's day at The Nutcracker,

Followed by a visit to Lenox Mall to ride The Pink Pig,

Followed by a visit with the big man himself!

Here they are deep in conversation. I was so proud of both of them for actually sitting with him and talking to him after having such a long day with no real naps. I think finally we're at the age of not freaking out. (H) was a tad nervous though, you can tell by his protruding tounge! I think he wouldn't have done as well without the knowledge that he was going to get a candy cane from him afterwards.

Today we're recovering from all that and trying to get everything ready for the upcoming multiple Christmas celebrations. I'll try and post a bit here and there but life's gonna get pretty busy so I'll say Merry Christmas now and see you again in 2010!
